Essential Questions

  1. How do circumstances and events impact the development of a hero? I think that the things you go through and the achievements you make in life can shape you into something different. It can make you become a better person or an inspiring person. I think that these things and the impact you make on life, your own or other people's, can make you a hero.
  2. How does a hero reflect the values of his/her society? A hero is someone who is looked up to, people feel inspired by heroes. The things that they do always affect the way others live around them. They save lives. Most likely that hero comes from that society and has been a part of it. They reflect it by making it a better and more safe place
  3. How can a hero inspire or motivate an entire society? They can either save lives or make a difference. All heroes are different, some save people from danger, some go on strikes to make a point. I think that inspires everyone around them.
  4. How do heroes display archetypal traits? They all do different things and show different characteristics. They can show those traits either emotionally or physically.
